    Lol, why not?

    People everywhere are essentially the same. These kinds of things make no difference to me!
    Are you Indian, Pakistani or Bengali?

    Is he the one you are currently crushing on?

    Meh my one is an Indian but I don't think he's into me
    You sure he's not into you though?? Like have you told him you like him?
    Yeah, it is the one I'm crushing on :blushing: He doesn't seem to be into me either, but I'm still going to carry on dreaming about marrying him. :lol: Indian guys are lovely. Parents wouldn't like the idea of me with an Indian guy, because Pak Indian rivalry init, so I wouldn't even think about it. Your parents are probably okay with it, if he's a Muslim?

    The traditional rivalry thingy and the typical "log kya kahenge".
    They would be cool with it though.
    Haha your parents are cool, mamu. I can never marry a Hindu/Sikh Indian guy or main tou gayi kaam se.

    Me neither. Probably just the culture, which clearly hasn't changed for a long time.
    Yeah that's true.

    Wouldn't mind as long as I'm not asked to convert.
    Family wouldn't mind either, but they would have a good chuckle if I married a Pakistani girl
    If you have kids one of you will have to and doing the Nikkah.
    A Muslim girl has to marry a Muslim.
    A Muslim man however can marry a Christian and Jewish woman.

    Well, he completely ignores me now and then. Especially around others. Leave him. he's a khota. I still like that khota though.

    Aww that's shooo ceewwt!!

    My parents would never let me marry a Hindu/Sikh Indian guy which such a shame cos I love them. However, if I find one that I click with, I couldn't care less of his religion or my parents etc.

    I think it's fair to say that these three backgrounds are fairly similar with subtle differences. These differences may be the language and religion.

    However, seeing as they all were one at one point in history, there are common traits that all these backgrounds have.

    Say if you were Indian, would you ever consider marrying a Pakistani or Bengali? (And vice versa).

    What would your family think?

    If your answer is no, why?

    I'm genuinely curious about this.

    I myself would not mind and neither would my fam

    No, I'm Indian and generally attracted to white guys but like Indian guys too. Parents would not approve at all of marrying a Bengali or Pakistani person, they'd sooner I'd marry a white guy.
    Same here loool.
